Domaine EDOUARD DELAUNAY Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2018
Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: Pinot Noir
Tasting notes: Gorgeous deep red in colour. Superb, warm, complex nose redolent of raspberry, blackberry, ripe plum and medlar. Magnificent start to the palate, which is simultaneously deep, velvety and fresh. Flavours of jam, kirsch and mild spices are underscored by a touch of vanilla and liquorice.
About the winery:
Originally from the west of France, Edouard Delaunay moved to Burgundy in 1893 after having inherited from a generous wine supplier. As a sign of its reputation at that time, renowned estates trusted him to distribute their prestigious wines, such as Domaine de la Romanee Conti. Unfortunately, in the early 1990s, the Maison had to be sold and slowly fell into oblivion. Bought back in 2017 by Laurent Delaunay, the great-grandson of the founder, the Maison Edouard Delaunay strives to regain its place within the inner circle of the great houses of Burgundy through the meticulous and precise vinification and ageing of exceptional wines from some of Burgundy’s finest terroirs.
